Get well soon, Vanessa Trump. According to the Associated Press, Donald Trump Jr.‘s wife was hospitalized on Monday, Feb. 12 as a precaution after she opened up a suspicious piece of mail that contained an unidentified white powder.
The news outlet reports that the substance was not dangerous or hazardous, however, Vanessa called 9-1-1 from the couple’s Midtown NYC apartment (two other people went to the hospital with her) after she started coughing and feeling nauseous upon opening the letter, which was addressed to President Donald Trump’s eldest son.
Luckily, at the time of the incident, the couple’s five kids, Kai, 10, Donald III, 8, Tristan, 6, Spencer, 5, and Chloe, 3, were not home.
Nobody from the Trump family or organization has given an update on her condition, however, Secret Service Special Agent Jeffrey Adams released a statement regarding the incident, via AP. “The Secret Service and our law enforcement partners in NYC are investigating a suspicious package addressed to one of our protectees received today in New York, New York. This is an active investigation and we cannot comment any further,” he said.
The POTUS’ personal attorney added, “How disturbed must a person be to do what they did to a mother of five young children? This dangerous and reckless act goes beyond political differences.”
This isn’t the first time the Trump family has had a scare regarding a mysterious substance in their mail. In March 2016, Donald’s younger son, Eric Trump, received a letter to his NYC apartment with white powder in it. On top of that, envelopes containing white powder were sent to the Trump Tower in NYC twice that same year. This whole thing is so scary — and we really hope Vanessa is ok.
